Another powerful storm system has hit California, bringing heavy rains and high winds to the state.
The storm is the 12th atmospheric river storm to hit California since January, and is causing flooding in some areas, with 17 million people facing flood alerts in Tulare County alone.
In addition to the flooding, central and southern California are bracing for whipping winds, which have already topped 70 miles per hour, with 33 million people under high wind alerts.
Thousands of families have been forced to evacuate their homes, and the storm is also eroding Riverbanks and putting pressure on levees and infrastructure.
While the state’s reservoirs are now at 70 percent capacity, the heavy rain is causing dangerous water rescues, and a water main break has added to the misery on LA’s freeways.
Despite the challenges, forecasters warn that more storms are on the way.
